Director: Ian Truitner
Writer: Ian Truitner
Release Date: October 7, 2016
Teleios will premiere at Shirekfest at the Los Angeles Horror/Sci-Fi Film Festival and Screenplay Competition on October 7, 2016. The Action, Sci-Fi is written and directed by Ian Truitner, and it stars Sunny Mabrey (Species III, Once Upon a Time), Michael Nouri (Flashdance, Damages), Lance Broadway (Olympus Has Fallen), T.J. Hoban (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Mykel Shannon Jenkins (The Bold and the Beautiful).
The deep space mining vessel Atromitos has been adrift for two years. It is suspected that most of the crew had brutally killed each other for reasons unknown. Genetically modified “superior” humans are sent to investigate the marooned ship and recover the only survivor.
Under the stress of isolation in outer space, the crew begins to exhibit unexpected character flaws. Cracks appear within the group which threaten the success of the mission and their chances of getting home alive.
Teleios has a very interesting synopsis, and the trailer is very intriguing. Deep space movies have a way of capturing audiences in some of the most profound ways, and it’s very rare that these movies disappoint.

I think it’s all in the mystery of the unknown when it comes to these movies. Being in an unfamiliar place where everything is an uncertainty, and every move you make can determine the path and the fate.
Since Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979), deep space movies have been blossoming and thriving in cinema entertainment, and even more-so in the Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller circuit, as space is a universal and constantly evolving theme.
Just as intriguing and exciting as the plot and trailer is for Teleios, so is the cast. Sunny Mabrey is certainly no stranger to the Horror, Sci-Fi circuit, with her appearances in Snakes On A Plane, Species III, and The Child.
Lance Broadway has made an exceptional appearance in Olympus Has Fallen, as well as in the Crime, Drama television show Lucifer.
T.J. Hoban is a very interesting addition, as this may be his big debut into the Horror, Sci-Fi arena. He’s more known for It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, however the closest he gets to Horror, Sci-Fi is Raise The Devil, which is a 16-minute Fantasy, Horror short.
It’s always interesting to see extreme advocates of other genres “cross over into the dark side”, as I always say. Especially being that other genres is all they’ve known since their careers in cinema entertainment started.
It’s interesting to see how directors, producers, and actors adapt to such a vigorous and demanding circuit. It’s almost like stepping into a whole new world. And, Horror cinema is it’s own world in a sense.
The majority of audiences, moviegoers, and television subscribers favor Comedies, Dramas, and Love/Romance over Horror, which the followers base can be described as more of a cult-like following. This is because so many people are close-minded to the world of Horror cinema and entertainment.
Teleios looks like it brings something for the likes of all audiences. After all, who doesn’t like a good Action, Sci-Fi film?
